User management

Add user as a developer to all projects

# omnibus-gitlab
sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:import:user_to_projects[username@domain.tld]

# installation from source
bundle exec rake gitlab:import:user_to_projects[username@domain.tld] RAILS_ENV=production

Add all users to all projects

Notes:

# omnibus-gitlab
sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:import:all_users_to_all_projects

# installation from source
bundle exec rake gitlab:import:all_users_to_all_projects RAILS_ENV=production

Add user as a developer to all groups

# omnibus-gitlab
sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:import:user_to_groups[username@domain.tld]

# installation from source
bundle exec rake gitlab:import:user_to_groups[username@domain.tld] RAILS_ENV=production

Add all users to all groups

Notes:

# omnibus-gitlab
sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:import:all_users_to_all_groups

# installation from source
bundle exec rake gitlab:import:all_users_to_all_groups RAILS_ENV=production

Maintain tight control over the number of active users on your GitLab installation

block_auto_created_users: false

Disable Two-factor Authentication (2FA) for all users

This task will disable 2FA for all users that have it enabled. This can be useful if GitLab's config/secrets.yml file has been lost and users are unable to login, for example.

# omnibus-gitlab
sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:two_factor:disable_for_all_users

# installation from source
bundle exec rake gitlab:two_factor:disable_for_all_users RAILS_ENV=production

Clear authentication tokens for all users. Important! Data loss!

Clear authentication tokens for all users in the GitLab database. This task is useful if your users' authentication tokens might have been exposed in any way. All the existing tokens will become invalid, and new tokens are automatically generated upon sign-in or user modification.

# omnibus-gitlab
sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:users:clear_all_authentication_tokens

# installation from source
bundle exec rake gitlab:users:clear_all_authentication_tokens RAILS_ENV=production
